It’s a thorny issue is religion
I am not about to start an inquisition,
everybody is entitled to their belief,
which faith is truly the one to believe,
my view is they are all man made
if not at the beginning then along the way,
with room for misinterpretation,
conflicting views that leave scope,
for plenty of contradiction.
My religion is simple
believe in self, before anyone else,
love self, before loving anyone else
and then love all else,
be kind to self and everyone else,
be compassionate to everyone else,
be tolerant towards those that need and deserve it,
Be at peace with self,
then show peace to everyone else.
This is how you live a good life,
show others no hate, violence or spite
keep all your words and actions impeccable,
act in a way that’s respectable.
if we do this any God
would be happy to embrace you
and say you lived life good,
you were not created to surrender you life
to an effigy or for a belief,
you were created to live well and righteously,
full of love, compassion and peace.
Religion is not required to achieve this,
just an understanding of right and wrong.
Worship you life before all else,
be the light that helps all else,
be selfless not selfish but don’t neglect self,
don’t spend your life around chasing greed and wealth
and neglecting the spiritual aspect of life,
like living a life with love and with light.
